Travelers' Choice
GreenLeaders Platinum level
El Blok is an iconic inn by the sea - a bar and restaurant with rooms - that aims to be a soft landing for the intrepid traveler after a hard day of relaxation. Affordable, simple rooms appointed with touch of luxe, it has a visual style like nowhere else. Colored hidrolico tiles, exposed concrete, native woods, clean, spare, exciting spaces. All this in a building that is gold LEED certified for it's sustainable design. El Blok is part sculpture, part oasis. Impossibly serene far flung beaches, great restaurants and only a few hotels, Vieques is a strange jewel of an island amongst the beauty and understated glamour of the Caribbean. 6 Miles to the east of Puerto Rico, and a short 20 minutes flight from San Juan, Vieques is in Puerto Rico's backyard...And light years from anywhere.

This was my first visit to the island of Vieques and unfortunately it was for work. The company book a reservation on El Blok hotel and it was simply perfect 👌. Kaytee the rooms manager took care of both the car that I needed to rent and the transportation from the airport to the hotel. Thanks Kaytee, hope you read this. On her days off Laine the shot el GM was graceful enough to offer her help in anything needed. Thanks Laine. Food at the hotel was the best on the Island. Do not go anywhere else looking for better tasting and presentation. Chris, one of the cooks was excellent and even gave me some tips on how to cook the best meat and hamburger ever. I tasted most of the menu and could not find anything to my dislike. Jose the bartender and his wife and server Yanira could’nt be more accomodating with me. The best service I have ever receive. Thanks to both of you. The room was extremely clean and beds are magnificent. The location offers a magnificent view of the south coast of the island from the Pool on the top floor of the hotel. The beach is around 50 feet from the hotel. In my next trip to this beautiful island I will definitely book this hotel. Excellent experience.

This place is so cool on the design and architecture which makes it almost inspirational. We stayed here for one night and it was a very pleasant experience. The food, bar and the rooftop pool were all amazing. The close proximity to the beach and it being a short walk was a bonus. The rooftop bar is only open on Sunday’s else the bar is located by the lobby.The highlight according to me was oats with coconut milk served for breakfast which was amazing.!Would highly recommend this place and be a returning customer the next time around.!!

Wouldn't even give it two stars if it wasn't for pretty tasty food and great beer. However, the major impression I took away is snooty staff. I go to Vieques often and always looking for different new places to stay. The hotel front desk would not let me see anything upstairs, not even the hallways, saying that "I can see everything online". Sounds like they have a lot to learn about hospitality. The restaurants staff also seemed almost 'bothered' to have to serve guests. I had high hopes for this place, because it looks very modern and cool, but was really bummed by unfriendly and unwelcoming service. Not likely to ever stay there, since there are so many other super friendly places on the island.

I cannot speak more highly of this hotel. The staff are charming, the rooms are gorgeous and well appointed and the breakfasts are excellent! You can tell that a lot of time and thought has been put into this hotel - the look of the hotel is straight out of a design magazine, the wonderful Turkish towels for the beach (large but not cumbersome) and excellent Aesop products in the beautiful bathrooms. We were lucky enough to have a terrace with a hammock seat which was lovely. The roof top terrace is amazing and the restaurant was fabulous - we’re vegetarian and they made us a special meal which was very thoughtful (even though there were vege options) Do yourself a favour and check out this fabulous hotel and Vieques

We came for the bioluminescent Bay and the wonderful beaches, and we were surprised to find that the real highlight was this hotel. To gradually wake up to a rising sun glimmering through the porticos of concrete and our glass wrap around porch, was a sight to behold, from out bed, as it rose above the ocean. It was quite beautiful, and a wonderful room. The staff was excellent, the bar and restaurant where amazing, and the entertainment and amenities were quite excellent. Ny only complaint is the bar has minimal hours and would be nice to have a cocktail of breakfast or midday. It would rush back to Vieques to stay in this hotel again
